It took us a minute to find this Mexican restaurant because its name isn't posted out front like every other business in the shopping plaza. Then it took us even longer to get into it. Despite the fact that the sign said "OPEN 10AM To 8PM"  the doors we're still locked when we showed up around 10:15 in the morning.

State inspectors reported 17 violations at Taqueria Huetamo during a January 29th inspection. Only four of the violations are listed as "high priority" but one of them was "rodent activity" which means a temporary closure every time.

A tick before 10:20 an employee finally unlocked the doors and let us in.

"How we doing?" I asked "I'd like you guys to show us where the problems were and how you cleaned up if that's alright?"

The employee quickly said he'd need to call the manager.

Me: Is he answering?

Employee: Nope.

Me: Can you give me a phone number for him?

Employee: Nope.

Me: Do you know when he'll be here?

Employee: Nope.

So I handed him a business card and asked for his boss/owner to give me a call. That never happened.

Taqueria Huetamo did pass its follow up inspection and is open for business.


Camilli's had 19 violations all together. Only three of them high priority but inspectors reported hundreds of rodent droppings scattered across a half dozen locations.

As soon as we walked in an employee gave me a phone number to call owner Lilly Camilli.

That's right. Lilly Camilli.

Lilly had an employee show us all the trouble areas listed in the inspection report.

Behind the ice machine? Check.

The walk in freezer? Check.

Dry storage? Check.,

Everything looked good to me and Camilli's Pizza passed the follow up inspection with no violations which is something we rarely see.
